Re: turning a PC on...

There was an aeroplane crash that was blamed on the instrument panel having too many warning sounds. IIRC The critical "stall" sound was similar to some relatively mundane warning.

A nuclear power plant's control panel had two identical levers side by side. One was for normal use - the other a crash down for emergencies. The operators replaced the levers' knobs with ones from a bar - being two distinctively different brands' beer dispensing figure heads.
